• Hand Painted & Resin Cast Swimming Koi Pen

    $ 340.00

    The Pen:
    Popular .30 caliber bullet cartridge pen is now streamlined in this twist version. Includes all the appointments of our 24kt Gold click pen, plus a Rose Gold tip that simulates an actual copper bullet. Rifle scope clip, casing twist mechanism, rose gold slug and striking cap.

    The Art:
    Hand painted fish in pond water scene with koi, grass and splashes. Cast in polyester resin so the paint is completely encased – protected and smooth. Will never chip or peel. Barrel shape creates a 3D viewing angle. The paint has a crackle effect that gives it an antiqued effect.

    The Process:
    Brass pen barrels were sprayed black, then painted by hand with acrylic paints. The pen was then corked and weighted with lead and placed in a rectangular mold of polyester resin. After hardening, then tubes were cut and drilled out of the block. It was then turned on the lathe and cut down with very sharp tools. Then sanded through twelve grits of sandpaper until perfectly smooth. A final coat finish of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) was applied, then buffed until shining beautifully. This method of finishing gives your pens the most durable exterior possible and a glisten that will last for many years with paint that will absolutely never come off.

    Metal Finish:
    24K Gold & Rose Gold

Usually smaller and shorter than trees, mallees grow multiple smaller-diameter stems from a common root system. Brown Mallee doesn’t refer to a specific tree of the same name, but rather describes burl pieces from various Eucalyptus species where the wood itself is brown in color.

  • “Life Is Fine” Photographic Canvas Print

    $ 165.00$ 240.00


    Taken: March 5th, 2011 – 4:53pm

    64° – cooling evening air with warmth from large rocks underfoot. Long, thin, slow moving cloud moving out from the mountains, highlighted by the setting sun. A moment so serene, the flocks of birds fly silently as they moved westward. Occasionally you would hear a thunderous flapping of wings as a group approached, even at long distances.

    Around sunset, I began to notice something I had never really experienced before. My skin, along with every pale object for ten miles around, had begun to glow a color a hazy pink, purple or orange.

    The sun had fallen behind the western mountain range and any lasting light beyond it was softly reflecting off the ground and atmosphere to our side.

    To add to the experience, the flat, dark sea water reflected this ambient light creating one of the softest, warmest locations I have photographed.

  • Custom Cheese Knife & Bottle Stopper Set (Free $25 Gift)

    $ 159.00$ 169.00

    About the Set:
    As we all know, one must use the right tool for the job. No sense hacking away at a block of hard cheese with a flimsy knife. Accordingly, the parmesan knife in this set is short, sharp and sturdy to cut through hard cheeses with ease. Use the universal cheese knife to slice through softer cheeses and to spear the wedges onto your plate with the forked tip. The cheddar knife is shaped like a square spatula with a finely honed edge so you can lay the slices onto your crackers after slicing. Finally, the cheese fork is great for serving up cubes or slices after the knives have done their job. Hardware is made from food-grade 304 stainless steel and attached to the handles. All hardware is dishwasher safe; the handles are easily removed for this purpose.

    The Process:
    This matching cheese knife set and bottle stopper are cut from the same piece of hardwood. The handle shape was designed by me, then cut, turned, sanded and finished on a lathe in my workshop. Each piece must be repeated by hand with precision of millimeters. The hand selected piece for this set was turned on a lathe with sharp tools, then sanded through a dozen several grits of sandpaper until perfectly smooth. The wood is then finished with boiled linseed oil, friction polish and wax, being buffed to a satin gloss. All work was done by me, by hand.

    Includes:
    • 4 Piece Cheese Knife Kit
    • Bottle Stopper
    • Signed “Wood Card”
    • Care instructions sheet
    • FREE $25 gift card/voucher to this store for future order or a gift to a friend
